In 32 minutes of preseason action so far, 6’10 Damjan Rudez has only 3 total rebounds! During Wedenesday’s loss to the Cavs, he even let the Cavs 5’8 rookie Kay Felder take a rebound out of his hands and score on a put back.
Felder, who recorded a record 44″ max vertical at the NBA combine and impressed during the NBA summer league, also scored 14 points on 7 of 11 shooting, grabbed 4 rebounds, dished out 2 assists and came away with 2 steals.
I think it’s a sure thing the 2nd round pick will be a fan favorite and contributor off the bench for the Cavs this season.
